Business rates recovery policy

This page was last reviewed on 14 August 2020.

We are committed to collecting business rates to ensure that the money is used for the benefit of all residents of the borough. If you do not pay your business rates, we will have to take further action to recover the money you owe. Our recovery policy lists all the steps we will take, together with the costs these will incur.

Due to the coronavirus outbreak we have suspended the sending of reminders and all other recovery notices until the end of June 2020. We will shortly be contacting people with arrears to ask them to get in touch with us to discuss their payment options.

If you are finding it difficult to pay your business rates we may be able to help. Please see our Coronavirus (COVID-19) - support with business rates webpage for more details.
